I’m giving away our new favorite book – Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten here.
I have a new giveaway up for a Monopoly board game here.
Little Miss had her five year checkup today at the doctor. Everything went relatively well. She’s still in the 75th percentile in height (43 1/2 inches – whoo) and 10th percentile in weight (yay to adjustible waistband clothing). We were both thrilled that she had no shots, and the doctor found that she was developing completely normally.
As many pediatricians do, she has a great way with kids. She talks to them about things that they (should) find interesting and compliments them when they do things well. And yes, we’re still working on her learning her address, but hey – at least the phone number part is done.
Halfway through the appointment, the doctor gave Little Miss a huge smile.
So who’s your favorite princess? she asked, innocently.
Princess Leia! Little Miss somewhat lisped.
Oh, I mean who is your favorite Disney princess? she clarified kindly.
Little Miss fixed her with a gimlet stare. I don’t like Disney princesses. At that point she tossed her head and sniffed haughtily. My older brother’s favorite guy from Star Wars is Princess Leia, too.
The poor pediatrician took the hint, and the Star Wars conversation was off. But those poor Disney princesses. I suppose this is also why Little Miss now has an alien lunchbox instead of the pretty pink one or the lovely flowered one my mom was trying to talk her into.
